Except preminum hands, I like 98s. I think it's better than T9s, JTs because it's rarely dominated by hands like AJ or AT. If you hit something like 9xx or 8xx, you are often ahead and it still a good hand with bluffing or still having a chance to win in later street when having a good board.

Have to say my right hand is more preferable over the left. However, try not show favoritism to either. Not caught up with caring what two hole cards are dealt. Have won with 2 7 and loss with A A. Depending on the circumstance, either one can win depending how they are played.
However, my absolute favorite is the winning hand.

My favorite hand has varied over the years. For example you could swear that at first it was aces, then Kings, and now it is K7 suited. I don't know why but this hand always brings me a lot of luck, I get more with it than with high card pairs. Regards.
